LIGHT, DURABLE, AND FUNCTIONAL. ALUMINIUM OFFERS A RARE COMBINATION OF VALUABLE PROPERTIES. IT IS ONE OF THE LIGHTEST METALS IN THE WORLD.
It’s almost three times lighter that iron but it’s also very strong, extremely flexible and corrosion resistant because its surface is always covered in an extremely thin yet very strong layer of oxide film.
In order to focus on performance and fuel efficiency, while reducing CO2 emissions, aluminium must be used. Every kilogram of aluminium used can reduce the overall weight of the vehicle by one kilogram. Hence, elite quality components are made from aluminium where possible: engine radiators, wheels, bumpers, suspension parts, engine cylinder blocks, transmission bodies, body parts, and even the chassis frame.
